    Hi Everyone, I'm new & just love this sight but sometimes I loose tract of the formum because of the abbreviations you all use. PM, DIL, BOM, DM, etc. etc. Could someone help us new ones to the board?

    So far I have figured out...

    PM=Private Message
    BOM= Block of Month
    DIL=Daughter in Law
    MIL=Mother in Law

    DH= ???Husband

    The D in front of Husband probably needs to be taken in context.
    Usual definition is "dear husband"

    Lovin' a couple on the list:
    "SABLE"= Stash acquisition beyond life expectancy! LOL My DD says that is what I have.

    "FART"= Fabric Acquisition Road Trip! I've been Fart-ing for years, just didn't know the right name for it!

    Hi there - Agnes is a "she" (well, not quite anymore), had one litter of puppies before she was neutered. She is now 8 yrs. old & in very poor health - the typical bully problems, eyes, ears, etc. At one time we had mother, dad & son but now it's just Agnes & our Wheaten Terrier (who is now 15). Won't be long for either of them I'm afraid - & we are looking at the French Bulldog rescue site. She is near & dear to us - thanks for asking about her. Yours is cute too!!
